Finally got a chance to visit athe Toy and Comic Convention in Singapore; It has always been a childhood thing, to be fascinated with toys and comics. Not sure it’s a dream fulfilled or not, but I felt that it is really an event which I should really visit; and it’s worth it :) Some people say, "Har! So big already still play toy and read comic ar!?". Are we really that far away from toy and comic?
The event is dominated by free Wii games at the front, with the Guns, Guitar and Fit devices. I wonder why XBOX and PS3 didn’t show up. The right wing is full with independent and smaller studio and artistes with some pretty interesting art and creation. The event had a good balance of US/Europe, Japanese and Singapore art and comic influence. We have quite a lot of star wars (Jedi, Bounty Hunters, Storm Troopers) characters walking around, some trekkies (with a Klingon), an Ultraman and some other not very well known characters. Too bad no Manga or Anime babe around, but did have some very nice Japanese dolls.
The most interesting game is a one dollar per pop block stacking game, where one of the major prizes is a PSP, so easy yet so far away. I felt that these artistes are really talented people; able to create their line of comic or figurine, and making their passion into their work is really a god thing. Now is not just about just drawing comic with interesting story, but also lovable family of figurines.
